by Dominick Argento
Fame is a dangerous dance.
A sultry young dancer is transformed from an unknown immigrant into a silent film sensation. Rudolph Valentino’s stardom blazes across the silver screen but is quickly consumed by the same forces that ignited it. Seduction and scandal swirl in Dominick Argento’s tango-tinged opera about an artist discovered and destroyed by Hollywood.
Sung in English with English captions projected above the stage.
A Minnesota Opera New Works Initiative Production.
